Milpa: From Seed to Salsa
Milpa: From seed to salsa
Kathy and Phil Dahl-Bredine founded the Guadalupe Montessori School in 1979. In 2000, they chose to move to Oaxaca, Mexico, where they have been working with local villagers ever since to build self reliance and community sustainability. In addition to clean energy and natural building projects, they have been working with practitioners of indigenous agriculture to protect and preserve their food traditions - critical both to the preservation of the local culture, and to the future of food on the planet, as this region is home to an astounding diversity of seed stock for several edible crops, including corn, beans and squash.

Toddler Bilingual Education
Our AMI trained lead guide, Shanna Shultz will be implementing the Montessori curriculum in English. Her assistant, Xochitl Hernandez Moctezuma will provide the bilingual component, interacting with the children and giving lessons exclusively in Spanish. There is a great deal of current research that details the many benefits of early immersion in a second language, among them increased vocabulary, deeper cultural fluency, and enhanced cognitive skills.
